DarqUI Unified Update Notes

DarqUI Unified Notifications

The optional taskbar notifier app has been updated. Version will be included with the upcoming version of the utility. If you need help with setting up or upgrading, use these instructions.


Planes of Prophecy Beta

To use DarqUI on the Beta server, copy the DarqUI Unified Utility into your \BetaServer\UI\ folder and run the installation from there. This copy of the utility will create a separate UI installation that will not interfere with your Live server UI

If you are copying your Live characters to Beta, you can also use the Beta Tools page to copy your customizations over to the Beta server

All DarqUI customizations
Character UI settings files (hotbar and window locations, bag sizes, chat tabs)
Custom keyboard layouts
Custom option files (preferences and video settings)


September 26, 2017: DarqUI v3.1.1.2

Gear Buff Macros
Configure special macro buttons in a new window that will automatically equip an activatable "clicky" item, cast the buff, then re-equip the previous item. See image below. Inspired by this conversation on the EQ2Wire forums

A variety of item types beyond gear pieces are good candidates for a buff macro including totems (runspeed, invisibility, etc.), mender bot, teleport items, food and drink, tinkered lifestones and manastones, repair kits, divining rods. If you use a specific mount when tradeskilling, you can set up a macro to switch to it from inventory
Use macro tiles to cast item buffs and spells in three ways:
+ directly from inventory
+ equip and cast
+ equip, cast and re-equip
Monitor Maintained buffs to remind you to recast
Send a custom line of text into your chat log to assist with ACT refresh timers
Dynamically resize macro tiles
Toggle the window from Start menu or Command Bar
Optionally display the macro window on login

Setup is relatively painless using the DarqUI utility, and you will probably want to use it even though the in-game Window Manager has a setup page. There is plenty of help if you click the [?] on the Gear Buff Macros utility page. Also check out the Gear Buff Macros tutorial

Thanks to Sneaks and halldor for testing and feedback
Thanks to DuneWarrior for improvement ideas
Group and Raid Windows
Added a setting to allow casting cures without a detriment icon present. Useful for "pre-curing" on certain encounters. See image below. Thanks to Zorbac for the idea

February 9 Mission list filter added to quest journal to match default UI changes

January 30 Combined WDB and SWDB for XP Bar, Character window, Stat Monitor and Window Manager

January 21 DarqUI Stat Monitor

The new DarqUI Stat Monitor displays up to five stats such as Potency, Fervor, Spell Doublecast, etc. in a large-format, flexible tiled window. Each stat can be configured with a logical setpoint that warns when the value reaches a specified threshold. Warning setpoints can be useful for timing certain abilities that depend upon temporarily high stat values from procs, or for tracking changes to other combat stats such as Threat or Haste.

Use the DarqUI Unified Utility to get the new files. There are normal and large size versions of the monitor. An in-game help file has more information if you need help setting it up.

Thanks to Dabb for the idea.

Jan 26: Added audible setpoint warnings

January 17 DarqUI Unified v3.1.0.6

DarqUI and the new utility include the following changes:

  • Full-screen windowed mode A feature adaptation of the popular Make Window Fullscreen utility by aerlyn_venekor. Using this option (Settings page of the utility), the game window will cover the entire screen even though it is technically in windowed mode. This allows you to [Alt+Tab] to other applications or mouse over to a secondary monitor without the graphical issues that come with switching between full-screen and windowed modes. The game window expands automatically when a character logs in. To return to standard windowed mode, press [Alt+Enter] twice.

  • Added small Mercenary window version
  • Open Harvesting Helper from the Start menu
  • Exit-to-desktop feature added to Shutdown page
  • Ability Doublecast added to XP Bar stats page

  • DarqUI Window Manager includes configuration page updates for the above components.


Oct 22: Kunark Ascending Beta

To use DarqUI on the Beta server, place a copy of the DarqUI Unified Utility into your \BetaServer\UI\ folder and run the installation from there. The utility will create a separate installation that will not interfere with your live server UI. If you want to copy your DarqUI customizations over to the Beta server, try the newest version of the utility which has some new tools for Beta participants.

DarqUI Unified Utility v3.1.0.5

To ease the transition to Beta for copied characters, version of the utility features a new Beta Tools page. If you are running the utility from the BetaServer\UI\ folder, the Beta Tools tab will be visible on the sidebar. You can use this page to port the following items to Beta:
  • DarqUI customizations
  • Character UI settings files (hotbar and window locations, bag sizes, chat tabs)
  • Custom keyboard layouts
  • Custom option files (preferences and video settings)

Included with this download, DarqUI Unified Notifications v1.1.0.1 optionally offers a helpful tip about DarqUI each time the notifier checks for updates. For help with installing or upgrading DarqUI_Notify, click here.

Oct 19

Use +/- toggle on the frame to switch between one-line and two-line enemy list display

Oct 18

Changed current target slot on Threat List to match default updates

Oct 14

You can toggle the new Threat List window by clicking on the crossed swords area of the main Threat window

Added current target to new Threat List window

The Pet call and shrink buttons should no longer get confused about whether you have a construct, a warder or a servant. Thanks to Accredo for help with testing.

Oct 12

The Maintained Spell Monitor has been updated to show comma separators for "Amount" values (upper right-hand corner of the icon). The window will show values up to 99,999,999. Please report any problems you may have with the display. This is for live and beta servers. Thanks to jeffjl for help with testing.

The Default UI on the Beta server includes a new "threat list" window which has some experimental modifications on the DarqUI update server. The files can be downloaded on live servers but will only be operational on the Beta server at this time. Use the command /togglethreatlistwindow to show the window.

Oct 10

An update to the DarqUI Character (Persona) window is available with features that are specific to the Beta server. If you are not beta testing, you can safely avoid replacing the Character window until the Kunark Ascending expansion goes live.

Other files updated for Beta:
Experience bar (Ascension)
Window Manager


September 27: DarqUI Unified Utility v3.1.0.4

Added configuration pages for Start Menu and Clock/Countdown Timer
Fixed a bug with reordering camp-to-character lists with fewer than 16 characters
The utility help window will remember its open/closed state between sessions

Rerouted a deprecated soe.com census call


August 23, 2016: Changes for GU101 are on the updater.


August 5, 2016: Some files have been updated to make DarqUI current with recent changes on the Test server. None of the updates will adversely affect gameplay on live servers.


July 17, 2016: Broker preset filters

You can now search the Broker for items by category using preset filters. Item filter lists were lifted from ProfitUI Market Favorites (most recently Zidu's work). Click "Presets" on the DarqUI Broker window to use the filters. Thanks to Accredo for help with ideas and testing.


July 6, 2016: Added Isle of Refuge and Race To Trakanon servers to window manager.


June 12, 2016: Harvesting helper

The DarqUI harvesting helper window eliminates repetitive mouse clicks and keystrokes during long harvesting sessions. Start the helper window and simply approach a harvestable tradeskill node. The helper will target (target_nearest_npc) and harvest from the resource. As you move from node to node the helper will continuously attempt to harvest, making it unnecessary to click harvesting ability macros or repeatedly double-click the node.

Open the window from the Harvesting page of the XP bar, or type:

show_window Custom.Harvesting

Utility v3.1.0.1 changes:

* Chat log category search language is now selected manually, defaults to English
